I am working on a IBM System x3250 M3 server and I have been trying to replace a degraded drive on a Raid 1 array. From what I have read and been told the array should synchronize automatically when the new drive is placed in the same slot. Unfortunately this did not happen. I entered the raid utility and noticed that the drive does not seem to be detected. I then switched the new drive from slot 0 to slot 1 and the drive is detected and ready. My question is this: could this be a controller failure or something I am missing? I have been banging my head over this. The drives are the same size and type. The controller is LSI 1064e SAS 3000 series. The degraded drive was in slot 0.
Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.
